My life plan is to be brutally honest all the way to the bank. Don't believe me? I run a popular YouTube channel called TrashyZane, and my claim to fame is oversharing about every aspect of my personal life. Sometimes while tipsy. Not everyone loves my style, but I have a long history of icing out people who can't handle me. I have no time for judgmental foolishness.
Except, apparently, when it comes to Beau Starr. His channel is the polar opposite of mine, and so is he. Wholesome, inspirational, and clean-cut. Everything about him should turn me off, but when we hook up following a confrontation at a convention, my world flips upside down. Not only does Beau Starr turn me on, he uses the exact combination of dirty talk and roughness needed to turn me out.
But we still hate each other. I think.
After my mild disappointment in Hard Wired I can’t say I was super stoked for Mature Content. But alas, I got one peek at that cover and whelp, here I am. It’s a great cover, just delicious. I’m pleased as punch to say the story found beyond the cover was equally satisfying.
With an entertaining storyline and witty dialogue, Beau and Zane’s story was an easy one to become engrossed in. I’m guessing this also has much (if not everything) to do with that seamless collaboration I’ve come to rely on from Erickson and Hassell. I don’t know how they do it, and really I don’t want to know, but it works for me. Let’s just call it magic. They could have maybe waved their magic wand a little harder towards the end, as the conflict resolution was a touch rushed. I do however notice this as a trend in the series so it is not terribly out of place.
Enemies to lovers books are not my first choice. I don’t really like all the hate fucking. And there is some here. However, I was totally onboard with watching their disdain for one another genuinely transform from hatred to love. I was surprised at the numerous moments tinged with sweet, tender romance. They were found to be in direct contrast to their scorching hot chemistry, but I think it totally worked for these characters.
